Re: General Outboard Maintenance?

Add marine Sta-bil in each tank if you don't run the gas out of the tank in a month.
Close air vents on tank?

Re: Outboard running temp?

After 40 years I finally went to Chiropractor and he has worked miracles on my back.
I am almost pain free for first time in 40 years.

I was a non-believer but now I am telling everybody to run to a chiropractor for relief

Re: GV 11 materials question

When laying glass I like my epoxy to be about 80 degrees before mixing - it is much more fluid and easier to work with than at 60 degrees - in my opinion........

Re: Mattkab's GV13

looks great

good call on extra glass if you plan to over power

sand real well before applying any fairing compound concentrate sanding on seams 40 grit is ok to start

Re: GV13 bottom finishing

I would not finish paint the exterior sides before completing the inside you could take it to primer level and graphite bottom.

Boat is light and easy to flip several times!

Re: Mattkab's GV13

From another GV13 builder that looks great - much better than mine at that stage!

It really took a nice shape with great seams!

Re: Mattkab's GV13

Looks great - I love my Garvey 13 - it can handle any sea conditions that I can.

When using the boat "we are one" after about 150 hours of running.

I would consider putting another layer of glass on bottom panels if you are going to add weight and want to use in heavey seas.

Have fun!!

Re: Door material?

Use frosted glass for panel would be a real cool look - some high end boats have doors like that.
